Wake up call!!!

"Well, that's not even a picture of you," you say! "That's a picture of your son." Ah, but that's the beauty of it. In June 2008, we took a family trip to the Outer Banks in North Carolina. I purchased a bikini on that vacation, thinking I looked pretty good (you know, for a mom), and was going to just be happy with who I was and what I had.
So I put on a bikini, strutted out to the beach, and played with my kids. My husband even remembered to pick up the camera and snap a few pictures...including this one. And when I saw it, I thought, "look at those fat legs." SNAP! Oh my goodness...those were MY fat legs. I was mortified. I actually wore a bikini, looking like that? Once again, a picture of my kids was ruined by my image being in there with them.
Funny how seeing yourself in the mirror can be SO different from seeing yourself in a picture. After this trip, I made a commitment that I would start exercising regularly and eating healthier.


  1. I had the exact thing happen to me. After my son was born, I wore a bikini to the waterpark. I thought I looked alright until I saw the pictures!! Thank goodness for TT, eh?

  2. So true! We both look so different now, don't we?

  3. Too hard on yourself. Legs a little flabby but all and all it's ok for a mom :)

    But I think you're doing a great job with your TT transformation. We're going to be thinking back about this when we're doing TC#100 LOL

  4. wow! You're such a cool mom! I mean like I wish my mom's not so sedentary (she's got arthritis) so I can do TT with her.

    Anyway, I like the way you do your 'wake up call',it's really cool and I just can't believe your before after photo.It's just awesome!

    By the way,just to let you know that I'm cleo from the TT forum ;)
